The Monday performance shows have been way down in the ratings so its no surprise that the Tuesday results program would follow suit. Compared to last spring’s first results show, DWTS was down by 28% in the demo (vs a 4.3) and down by 18% in total viewers (vs 19.3 million).


Reference point: The Spring 2010-11 season’s results shows averaged a 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 17.67 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
